the nones, n-o-n-e-s, because when they are shown a list of religions and denominations, and asked which one is theirs, they say, in effect, none of the above. last fall we did a well-received series on the nones, who they are, what they believe, and we want to revisit those stories today and in the next two weeks. our partner in theeriewas the pew forum on religion and public life, where greg smith is a senior researcher. >> almost one in five american adults, 20%, describe themselves as religiously unaffiliated. that equates to about 46 million adults in the united states, so this is a big, growing, important group in american society. to see its continued growth at this kind of rapid rate has been very striking. >> striking indeed. in the early 1990s just under 10% were unaffiliated. since then that number has doubled. about 13 million are atheists and agnostics. 33 million more describe their religion as "nothing in particular." by education and income and other common measurements, the nones are very much like americans as a whole. except for age. >> about one-third of all american adul

religion - it's to give us the skills so if you are interested in going on further, that you'll be able to pursue it, so that's the key there. before taking a couple more questions, we are actually kind of waving good-bye to our first dimension as we move down the pike. but good-bye's not the same - we want to keep these dimensions together. we're going to - i'm kind of excited - we're going to move into myth in particular, but myth and ritual, and in this class, i want to talk about the relationship of myth, ritual, and include religious experience, so we're going to be doing that also. but before launching into this great leap into the next segment of the course, i just want to take a few more questions on buddhism, or comments or insights that you had. yeah? >> when i think of christianity or judaism, i think of community, families - the thing with hinduism and buddhism are the men seem isolated from the women, and the men are social people; it seems - i want the family to be brought into it, i guess because of my christian background, i see worship as a family unit. and maybe i'm no
